308 Win - 165 Partitions - Stutzen

Post by secondtry » Wed May 22, 2019 12:12 am

(Cartridge) 308 Win

(Brand of bullet) Nosler Partition

(Weight of bullet) 165gn

(Brand of brass) Winchester

(Type of powder) Alliant Power Pro 2000 - MR

(Grains of powder) 50.5

(Brand, and type of primer) Federal 210GM

(COAL) 2.867" (.040" to lands)

(CBTO) Not checked (yet)

(FPS/MPS) 2675fps (50gn is 2650 fps. 50.5gn not chrono'd)

(Rifle) K95 Stutzen

(Barrel Length) 50cm (19.7")

(Scope) Zeiss Victory HT 2.5/10/50

(Weather conditions & temp) No wind. 15/18 degrees C

(Accuracy @ 100 yards/meters) .510" for three

(Notes) I was chasing 2700 fps with this but am probably an insignificant amount short. It is a big improvement over Norma 165 Oryx factory ammo which couldn't get to 2600 fps, although the Norma accuracy was acceptable at around 1 MOA.
I have been frustrated trying to get this powder/bullet combo to produce the accuracy that I knew the rifle could produce. Ditto for my 308 bolt action.
More jump was the answer.

Practically 2700 FPS from a 20 inch barrel with that sort of accuracy, you gotta be happy with that.

Yes, pretty pleased with the eventual result. Definitely my 308 Sambar load.

Trouble is that since I got my 7x65R K95 four years ago I have used it almost exclusively. I'm going to have to make a definite effort to use the Stutzen. So far its only victim is a large wild dog.

I got great accuracy and an even 2700fps with 8208, but if it's shooting that good no game animinal on the planet is going to notice a few fps less. :handgestures-thumbup:

Sounds good. My 308 dies arrived today and I've got a packet of 165 accubonds, and partitions so keen to test them out myself.
